They aren't nearly at the point of matching their giddiness during the dot-com days, but with the recession waning, technology companies in Northeast Ohio are optimistic again, and they are hiring. Westlake's Hyland Software Inc. provided evidence of the new surge of optimism last week with the announcement that it has filed for an initial public offering of stock, but other technology executives also report that they are adding staff to keep up with growing orders. Hyland, which was founded in 1991 and makes the OnBase document management software, said last week it hasn't yet determined the number of shares to be offered in its planned IPO or the price range for the offering.
